In a video released by the Human Rights Campaign on Monday, Hillary Clinton announced her support for gay marriage.
The move doesn’t shock many as Clinton served as a world-wide advocate for gay rights while serving as Secretary of State over the past four years.
Vice President Joe Biden doesn’t seem to be trying too hard to keep his intentions of running for President in 2016 a secret, but it won’t be an easy run especially since he’s starting his bid four years too early and his own flaws aren’t even his biggest obstacle.
The President of the United States of America and the President of the World sat down together in their first joint interview that aired Sunday on “60 Minutes.” In the video below you will see that President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have come a long way since their 2008 battle for the White House and accomplished much more than many ever expected.
Short of affirming this CBS interview as an endorsement for Hillary Clinton’s bid for the White House in 2016, an office she has yet to say she will seek, the President used this as a chance to thank someone who he called “one of the finest” Secretaries of State in history.
You can watch video of the first part of the Obama-Clinton interview here and video of the second half of the interview below:
In the second part of this historic interview, President Obama and Secretary Clinton talk about her health and any regrets they have from the past four years. Here is that video:
Hillary Clinton made the list of Barbara Walters’ “Most Fascinating People of 2012″ and, of course, her political future was one of the many topics the two women discussed.
Clinton has already said she will step down as Secretary of State early next year, but will she run for President in 2016? Here’s what Hillary told Barbara:
Don’t say Hillary Clinton has done nothing for Barack Obama’s re-election campaign. Secretary of State Clinton says she doesn’t want the deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya last month to be a part of the political “blame game,” so she is taking the wrap for the lack of security.
Clinton said she is in charge of security for State Department employees working around the world on behalf of the United States. She said in television interviews during a visit to Peru Monday that President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden would not know about specific decisions made by security for these individuals. She also reiterated that the circumstances surrounding attacks like the one on September 11 that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans are not always transparent right when they first occur.
So far, throughout the 2012 race, Secretary Clinton has said she is out of the political scene.
